The presentation of your home, especially its 'kerb appeal' is extremely important. Emotive purchasers are likely to buy with their heart, and it isn't uncommon for buyers to drive past a house before contacting the agent. The decision to even make contact with the agent can be made based on first appearances, and so it is vitally important that your property is presented in the most efficient way to entice a purchaser to want to see more. It is also worth noting that poor first impressions can make a buyer wary about potential ongoing maintenance issues.
